The Bag Raiders have been on a hot one lately with their latest EP “Nairobi / Savannah” on Modular People receiving major critical acclaim from artists and bloggers alike. After offering up the stems for Nairobi via their SoundCloud, the Drop Out Orchestra have turned it into a fiesta via waveform. With flaring trumpets battling guitar riffs front and center they twist the chugging tune into a late night bonfire with your closest comrades. Offered up as a free download and supported by the Bag Raiders themselves, it’s safe to say this one’s going in the bag.


Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it.  The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty.  Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate.  Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.

As the seasons are slowly shifting, the music follows suit.  Light and cheerful riffs are slowly paving the way for deeper disco sounds.  Sounds that will resonate throughout a nighttime hideout and keep the kids dancing.  Steel drums and synths are still there, just down-tempo and with a heavier groove.  Peel the paint off the walls and lets boogey.
